Well, we did it. We’ve been saying we ought to try it for a long time.
We took the whole family camping.
In tents. (Isn’t our campsight pretty? Cades Cove is a beautiful campground.)
And it rained…every…night.
But we still had a wonderful time.
We visited the schoolhouse where my grandfather attended: Little Greenbrier Schoolhouse.
This is the Walker Sisters Cabin. The Walker Sisters were my great-great aunts. My mother used to visit them as a child when they lived in this cabin. (They refused to move when the land was made into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The park service agreed to let them stay until they died.)
Someone wasn’t up for the hike.
That same someone was still tired on the way home!
